    You'll still be sending it before the deadline, what's the problem?

    If you don't like it, you should have sent it off earlier.

    1) The UCAS people deserve time off too, they're only human
    2) Nobody would read your application if you could sent it off as the admissions tutors are also human
    3) Just be patient. It's not like they're closed until the 16th of January. Your application will still be sent before the deadline.

    i really wouldnt generallise like that.
    I'm not the OP, dunno about their situation but personally, ive done mine ages ago and sent it off.
    The problem is my Ref, he hasnt done my reference or checked my application yet, thats why im personally annoyed.
    Plus, some courses apply later than others to gauge a better understanding of their course for their PS. im on a one year foundation course and its a big part of the statement to write abotu it so applying in september is pointless, i left mine till november so i actually knew what to write about the course than making up random BS.

      Uni and UCAS staff need holidays too like the rest of us. Seriously. Surely doesn't mean you can't submit your application if its complete. It just won't be dealt with until the 4th, along with the other many other applicants' applications.

      At the end of the day its submitted before the deadline, and it will be timestamped as before the deadline so whats the problem? They won't reply until after the deadline no doubt now anyway.

      And if they want that long off then it makes more work for them, their problem.

        Yes you can. Its all electronically done. They won't switch off the servers because they're not in office. Just means you can't ring them for advice.

        It doesn't mean they're not working. It just means the helplines aren't open.

        I work in retail and whilst the shop doesn't open til 10am on Sundays, someone will have been there since at least 7.30 doing things!
